I have always had an adventurous nature. More than I realized, until my parents reacted nonchalantly to my skydiving with my roommate for our 30th birthday. I thought they would be shocked and angry. They simply said “we always knew you would do something like this”. Born in Atlanta, Ga; moved around (SC, PA); landed in central California (Fresno); received my BA from UCLA, I describe myself as Southern by culture and West Coast by lifestyle. For 20+ years, I defined myself by my career. Given the opportunity to break free from corporate America, I am enjoying life beyond deadlines and definitions.
